This is my reasoning for only calling the river as well. In addition to the A [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] the 9 [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] gives villan a straight flush. The K is on the 3rd nut flush in this case, and with a paired board is pretty far down the list to be reason to raise.

I was feeling like maybe it was a bit weak to just call the river bet.

Don't worry about that, the board is paired and two differnt hearts beat you as well, calling is the only option really.

One thing you should keep in mind when you check the turn in position to keep the pot small/playing WAWB, is that you should call a lot of river leads by the villian because you will induce a lot of bluffs.

Nice hand.

Yeah the check def. wasn't with the intention of folding the river. I think it allows me to keep the pot small and maybe make him bluff at the river with a weak hand. Guessing from what everyone else is saying, that was the right way to do it.
